Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 also features 9 new stages:
- Shadowland: A new version of the Hand Hideout stage. Dark Daredevil sits upon his throne and watches the battle with the Hand ninjas. The temple has moved from the mountains to a nightime city environment. This is based off the Marvel Comics event "Shadowland" in 2010 where Daredevil becomes the new leader of the hand ninja and builds Shadowland, a temple/prison on the ruins of a building in hells kitchen previously destroyed by Bullseye during the Dark Reign event
- Bonne Wonderland: A new version of the Kattelox Island stage. Winter has hit the island, and everyone is remaining inside, except the Servbots, who are out at play creating snowmen.
- S.H.I.E.L.D. Air Show: Flying through the daytime sky is the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, as jets take off. This version of the stage places fighters aboard the Helicarrier itself, as opposed to the original iteration wherein players merely fought on a nearby aircraft with a view of the Helicarrier.
- Chaos at Tricell: A new version of the Tricell laboratory. All of the B.O.W.'s have broken out of containment and have completely wrecked the labs. Numerous items from the Resident Evil series lay scattered in the background.
- Danger Room: A new version of the Danger Room stage, which is now renamed Training Room in UMVC3. Professor X watches as the fighters prepare for battle in the new Danger Room stage. This stage is actually shown as the main menu in the original MVC3.
- Asgard: Sea of Space: A new version of Asgard. Nightfall has come in the land of Asgard, causing the buildings to give off a beautiful golden glow.
- City That Never Sleeps: A nighttime version of the Daily Bugle stage. The parade is over, and instead the crowds of New York City gather to watch the battle on a large screen, and to see Felicia and Dazzler at a concert.
- Days of Future Past: A new version of the Metro City stage. In a dystopian future, Sentinels have risen to slay and/or imprison members of the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 cast. Already slain are Cyclops, Marrow, Iceman, Jin, Cable, Amingo, Captain Commando and Sonson. Apprehended include Colossus, Ruby Heart, Gambit, Hayato, Psylocke, Rogue, and B.B. Hood. Mega Man apparently still wanders free as a reference to Wolverine who was on the original Days of Future Past comic book cover.
- Demon Village Redux: A different version of the Demon Village. In an homage to Gargoyle's Quest on the Game Boy, Demon Village is presented in black and white. Playable characters still appear in color, however.
New Game modesEdit
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will also feature new game modes.
- Spectator Mode: A mode that allows players to view other players fight. Up to 6 players can watch a fight at a time.

- Heroes and Heralds Mode: A free, post-release DLC mode that allows players to equip their characters with 3 cards, from a selection of over 100, that change attributes, including but not limited to parrying, super armored assists, X-Factor blowback, dizzying attacks, projectile invincibility, special cancels into specials, invisibility, etc.

- (An asterisk marks that that battle from the trailer is a part of the official intro.*)
- There was a rumor circulating in March of 2012 that another edition of the game would be released. A poster was leaked online with the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 logo with a large yellow X over it; rumors said the game would possibly be called Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: Extreme Edition (hence the "X" for "Extreme") and would cost $39.99 for new buyers and $14.99 as DLC for people who already owned Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Apparently, the game would include 8 new characters; this supported a report back in 2011 that 8 characters were cut from the Ultimate edition to make the holiday sales. However, this has been dismissed by Seth Killian and several other Capcom representatives, who stated that the recently released costumes are the only current plans that Capcom has for the series; however, they didn't deny that another version could sometime come out in the future.
- One of the Achievements references the show Charles In Charge.
- Many others are also shouts out or mythology gags; The "Ultimate Nullifier", after a famous weapon from Marvel comics, "Excelsior!" is Stan Lee's catch phrase, "School for the Gifted" refers to the Xavier Academy, "Whose Side Are You On?" is the tagline to Marvel Civil War.
- A few are comic industry in-jokes, such as "Waiting for the Trades" (the practice of waiting for a series to be collected to purchase it) and, conversely, "I Buy the Issues" (pretty much the reverse of the previous example)
- Quite a few achievements you get for pairing up certain characters with people from their same continuity and KO-ing them, regardless of whether you're the one KO'd. "Whose Side Are You On", as the reference to the Marvel Civil War, is achieved when you KO Iron Man as Captain America (or vice-versa), and another has you "determine the fate of the Satsui no Hadou" - by pitting up Ryu against Akuma.
- The Ultimate in UMvC3 is a reference to Marvel's Ultimate Marvel line.
- Also, one can notice that in Ultimate MvC3's character select screen, posters of the first two MvC games can be seen in the background as well as as a poster of the original MvC3.
- There's a Days of Future Past stage with a Wanted poster with MvC2 characters, referencing the iconic cover of Uncanny X-Men #141.
- The alternate versions of the MvC3 stages reference the alternate versions of the stages in MvC2, like the snowy version of the Clock Tower, and a night version of Ruby's ship; however, more work is put into these and some are in different locations entirely, like Shadowland being near Dark Daredevil's throne, and the daytime of the Helicarrier actually being on the Helicarrier than on some platform watching it.
- UMVC3's Capcom-style boxart is drawn by Shinkiro, the same person who made the boxart of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and The King of Fighters '94 through 2000.
- Buyers will have the opportunity to change the the cover with one of two different box arts: One drawn by a Marvel artist, and a Capcom artist.
- Even though only 8 new stages were announced, a ninth one was added to the game.
- The sign She-Hulk destroyed in the full cinematic trailer said Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
